In this week’s preview, it appears that Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) has discovered Floki’s (Gustaf Skarsgård) plan and is not very pleased. We wonder whether she will make it easy for Floki to leave after everything they have been through together.
Meanwhile, Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen) has reached King Harald’s (Peter Franzén) kingdom, and the two rivals band together against Queen Lagertha and Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith). Their alliance is undoubtedly one of convenience, and if they are to defeat Lagertha, they will most likely then turn on each other.
To prepare their men for battle, Lagertha charges Ubbe with leading her army. As The Seer foretold, this conflict between brothers will most likely tear apart their people.
In a final scene of the preview, Ivar commands Bishop Heahmund (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) to fight for him or die. We know that Bishop Heahmund is not afraid to die, but what are the odds that he will fight for Ivar?
Watch the preview for “The Message” below.
The official description of the episode is listed as follows.
Lagertha is betrayed and Bjorn must find a way to support the distraught queen. Floki and his settlers arrive in a new land but it is far from what they expected.
Vikings airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on History.
